This is my love letter to the world, and my prayer that we may have
an abundant life of mind, body, and spirit.
Our planet is in need of
desperate healing, and if one human being can touch humanity, speak
truths, and have faith that we can live harmoniously and joyously, then
life is not in vain. It is the goal of this book to heal, inspire, empower,
and assist humanity of all ages in achieving personal growth, and
transformation that leads to the highest level of self-development and
Many of us spend our days toiling and never finding the time to enjoy
life. We are not living—we are merely surviving. Life keeps on passing us
by and we miss the true meaning of living merry. In fact many of us do
not consider life as a place for merriment. Instead life seems to be a place for hard work, great business, and intellectual pursuits, but happiness is viewed as one of the benefits that may or may not come as a result of hard work.
This is not true living. It is a means to an end, and our end will come without having lived in merriment or fulfillment.
With all of the chaos the world brings, we find ourselves dying mentally,physically, and emotionally more each and every day.
We get one life, and someone once said that “life is not a dress rehearsal.” We certainly will not get a second chance to live as we are on this planet again. All the reason
to start now, while we still have the opportunity to enjoy this wonderful
journey called life.
A journey has many paths, twist, and turns. However, we have
an internal compass that can guide us to the best way for each of us
We sometimes take a road that is so dark and unfamiliar we may have great difficulty finding the lighted path.
This is when we need a guide. Some of us are too afraid to ask for help or seek guidance to a better path, this is counterproductive to our own development, and can certainly hinder our growth.
God is merciful and he always provides a way of escape. He will always
send someone to gently remind us of a different way, or show us we are
headed down a road of destruction. Throughout history, God always
provides guides, messengers, or teachers to lead us towards the paths of light, peace, and love. I did not say to “lead us to the right way” since I do not believe there is a wrong or right way when it comes to navigating life.
I believe there are better ways, and in this book, a spiritual way of
living merry is the most powerful way which can allow us to experience
happiness even when everything around us seems chaotic.
The earth is in a chaotic state, humanity is a chaotic state, and none
of this would be possible if we did not create the destruction in our minds
first. When I speak of “we” It is my way of claiming our collective part in
the chaos of the world. Small fires start big fires, and every one can do
his or her part in changing the world in which we live.
We contribute to the destruction of our bodies and neglect the urging of our spirit, until it becomes so impoverished that our entire being is thrown into imbalance.
How do we begin to take responsibility for our part in restoring harmony?
By loving ourselves first, one by one, and our immediate world, our
immediate environment, and our perspective will change.
The only true way to happiness is love, the love of self and the love
of others. Our ability to love will create an atmosphere of peace, and will
allow us to genuinely live well. Love is the strongest force in our universe,
second only to faith. For God the creator of the entire universe is love,
and love is God. By faith the worlds and the universe were framed. If we
honor love and faith, if we embrace them both whole-heartedly then our
lives will change, they must change.
This has been the only sure way the
world has ever known to consistently, and unequivocally bring about real
happiness and positive change. Love is a force so powerful it can heal the
broken in mind, body, and spirit. Love can create, and it creates more
love, encourages laughter, and feeds and nourishes the soul.
This is my love letter to the world and my gift to this world I love so
much. It is my desire to share all of the information God has blessed upon
me in a universal way. It is with my love and hope that this book reaches
people from all over the world, and of every nationality, race, culture,
and creed. It is my hope and desire that the love created within these
pages fills and inspires each reader to love him—or herself completely
and others as well.
Strangely, there is a huge myth insisting we can love others without
recognizing and accepting the love within ourselves first. This is
perhaps one of the biggest tales ever perpetuated, and I believe it is
the reason why there is much turmoil in the world today.
One can only
give out of the abundance of that which he or she already has. The
first vessel we are given to love is ourselves. We can never extend love
if we do not love our own vessel in mind, body, and spirit. If we have
no understanding of love, how can we give it, or express it to others?
Living is about loving and every chapter in this book is inspired by love and the love of life.
There is certainly enough love to go around in an abundant supply,
yet we must first tap into its unlimited resource and lavish ourselves with it. Only then can we spread love and the healing will ultimately begin.
We will talk more about this topic later in the book. I have purposely
placed it as the starting point since it is one of the most important factors
needed before one can make merry.
Genuine happiness begins with loving
ourselves and then we can share what we have with others.
For ages, people have claimed they committed acts in the name of
love, some too horrible to even fit in the same sentence as love. The word
love is misused, and used in vain so much that it is now synonymous with
and no more important than boxed chocolates, fancy dinners, and roses.
Men have believed they conquered distant lands in the name of love, and
have had the audacity to wage wars in the name and love of God. However,
true love is none of these things.
Love is the very sphere and essence which holds together our being.
It is the light emanating from us and serving as a direct connection to
all of life, the universe, and the great creator.
It is the goal of this book to help others to discover their inner light and allow it to guide them to
the desires of their heart and a life of living merry.
This is my love letter to the world. I have been compelled to let
humanity know we have the power to heal our planet and have the life
Although it may sound corny, writing a love letter to the world, I feel that if I ever had something to say to the world, it would be the contents of this book. So these words are written and sealed with my love.
The greatest lesson I have learned in my life has been to love life, God, my
self, and others to the greatest capacity of my being. Nothing has proven more beneficial, more powerful, or more giving in return than love.
I submit to you that love is the only real secret humanity fails to
acknowledge as the hope for our existence. The words of that old song
“what the world needs now is love, it’s the only thing that there is just too little of” is the spoken truth, and so I write this book as my love letter to the world.
The journey of this book will explore how to enjoy life despite the
many challenges which may occur. We will identify how to live merry in
the face of adversity and how to allow grace to keep us sane and gratitude
to keep us blessed. We will learn how to value, love, and accept the true
self. We will explore how to stay balanced while embracing the joy of
living to the fullest of our capacity. With these ingredients we will make
an elixir of life, a cocktail that will fuel the mind, the body, and the soul.
We will turn sour tastes and strange fruits into pure juicy sweetness and
slowly savor every drop. Let us begin together, the first day of the rest of
our lives living merry.
With all my love,
